HKIFF電影節#5 - 潛行者 (Stalker)

Day 45 – Stalker, 1979 (Andrei Tarkovsky)


Cast: Alexander Kaidanovsky, Anatoli Solonitsyn, Nikolai Grinko, Alisa Freindlich

剛收到蘇聯塔可夫期基的科幻片<Stalker>(潛行者)推出復修版本影碟的消息,電影節同時也有兩場公映,大會堂爆滿,奧海城亦九成滿座。潛行者片長163分鐘,電影來說不算長,但不易消化,有不少如迷一般的用語,Stalker「潛行者」這字本身在電影中有其特別意思,也是故事的主人翁,不論在視點或是畫面也是從他的腦海中展現來。由他帶我們進入一個如戰後的神祕地帶「the Zone」,取景於一片荒涼之地,大量的長鏡頭和闊遠鏡,三人在一片死水和荒草中尋找樂園,拍得極之奇幻迷離,究竟他們想在荒涼之地裡的密室找到甚麼?為何潛行者會在這找到自我?兩位旅客又可曾相信世間有淨土才到此地?塔可夫期基帶出的哲學命題,自我探索和恐懼,由奇幻迷離的<潛行者>引發觀眾去思考了。
